“Fabulous Apartment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

My Husband and I stayed in the Kingsview Apartment with our young daughter over Christmas and New Year. The Apartment had everything we needed. The owners were very kind and decorated the living room with a Christmas Tree and other decorations. We felt very at home in this warm Apartment. The bedrooms are spacious and the bathrooms are beautiful and modern. The walk in to Stirling was less than 10 minutes. There are a variety of supermarkets, some you have to drive to which take approximately 15 minutes so we were never stuck for choice. Only tiny problem was WiFi, it was temperamental at times, but other than that, our whole experience with Kingsview was fantastic. We would definitely consider staying at Kingsview Apartment again in the future.

“Four stars by the Scottish Tourist Board are well deserved”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2012 for a stay in September 2012

The Kingsview Apartment was an upgrade provided to me by the owner when one of his other properties that I had reserved became unavailiable. The upgrade was most generous and I could not have been happier with the accomodation. The property was located in the best part of Stirling and was minutes away from the castle, Stirling golf Club, shopping, dining and whatever else that I required. The apartment was in immaculate condition and had every amenity that one could desire. Simply could not have asked for more.

“Some empty promises - disappointing stay.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Initally looking at the Kingsview Apartment it ticked quite a few boxes from the website - and for staying with a small family (we had a one year old child) it was good. Spacious, well appointed, etc. Some things are very disappointing though that may influence your decision.

- The Kingsview Apartment website quotes "A starter pack of ...a bottle of wine to help you get your holiday off to a relaxing start.". This was definitely NOT provided.

- In an email received before arrives it says "In the apartment you will find a folder on the Hall table which will answer any questions you may have when you arrive ie things to see and do etc,places to eat, heating, hot water etc." This was definitely NOT provided, rather we were ushered into the apartment and left to our own devices!! We had to find where oeprating manuals where and we were definitely given NO clear direction as to what was available in the town of Stirling.

- Upon arriving with a child we asked about a high chair available - we were told that we would receive one "soon". For the rest of our stay we were not given or told about whether one was available - we were forgotten about.

- We were told that the owner will catch up with us on our 4 day stay - this did not occur.

- The apartment is located in the basement of another house and so noise/footsteps could be regularly heard above our heads.

I would expect to be contacted by the apartment owners/booking agency regarding compensation for this.

Management Response
4 Dec 2012
On behalf of the owner of Kingsview Apartment, Stirling Self Catering would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your time in writing a review.
Negative reviews are certainly not something we are used to in this company and I am sorry that you feel that the apartment made a disappointing stay for you and your family.
It was certainly never the intention of the owner to usher you in and leave you to your own devices and certainly not something he is in the habit of doing. In fact a previous Trip Advisor reviewer even commented: “The owners are friendly and helpful, even going to the extent of driving my husband on a brief 'guided tour' upon our arrival!”
The issue regarding the welcome folder has now been rectified. This item was in the process of being updated and it was not apparent to me that the previous one had been removed before the latest one had been put in place.
With regards to the missing bottle of wine, the only mention of this is on a very old website which I believed was no longer live. This website has no function with regards to bookings for Kingsview apartment as this is all done through Stirling Self Catering. There is no mention of wine in the welcome pack in any Stirling Self Catering contracts, booking forms or other info sent to you from Stirling Self Catering. This old website has now been deactivated so this misunderstanding cannot arise in the future.
On the booking form there is an opportunity to request additional items eg cot, highchair, guest beds etc and there is no mention on your booking form of a request for a high chair. All visitors are issued with the property owner’s phone number and also a contact number for Stirling Self Catering.I am surprised therefore you didn’t make contact with either of us to highlight the fact it was not in situ or to the fact that you felt that a further visit from the owner was highly necessary. Through experience we find most guests wish to be left in peace while on holiday and only contact the owner or Stirling Self Catering if there is a problem.
As you are aware the owner and his wife live above the property; I am sorry that you found the noise of footsteps above annoying however given that this is an 150 year old Victorian property it does not have the benefit of modern sound insulation. Again, this is the first time this has ever been raised as an issue and your comment has been passed onto the owner.
On this occasion, I do not feel that there are substantiated issues justifying compensation. I would ,however,like to offer you our sincere apologies for any distress caused and again I am sorry that you felt Kingsview Apartment made for a disappointing stay.

“Excellent stay. A home away from home.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Stayed with my partner and parents for 4 nights. We all wish our stay here could have been longer. The apartment is lovely and clean and well equipped. We walked to the town centre and also enjoyed lovely walks through the Kings Park accross the road. The apartment was spotless and nicely decorated. The previous guests to us had broken the dining table so it was the only thing missing as eating around the coffee table was a bit tricky. Other than that it was perfect. Highly reccommended.

“Wonderful location in Stirling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The apartment is spacious, nice, and clean (the kitchen could have been cleaner). The location is excellent being in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood, and a 10-minute walking distance to the city center and main train station. We only had problems with the absence of power outlets in the main bathroom and a few items in the kitchen/apartment. However, the owners (who live upstairs) were very nice, helpful and accommodating all our requests. For everyone’s convenience, these items, being very inexpensive, should be made available: more paper towels, tissues, toilet paper, laundry detergent, cutlery, and plates.

This is an amazing apartment in Stirling, in a really lovely location opposite the Kings Park. The rooms are spacious and the apartment contains everything you might need.
